The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs have an amazing sense to know when someone is hurting.  People sense the dog's gentle spirit and find unconditional acceptance and peace when they are hurting or grieving.   There is something so therapeutic about hugging a dog.

Tim Hetzner, president of K-9 Comfort Dogs, says dogs are great counselors, because they are good listeners, they keep it confidential, and they offer affection to everyone unconditionally.

Have you ever hugged your pet, buried your face in its fur, and found comfort and acceptance there?  If so, then you can appreciate the mission of these special dogs - trained to be hugged and petted, to comfort and console humans who are struggling to cope with their emotional reactions in the aftermath of a disaster.
